Under different names, we had been providing home birth care in the Bay Area since 2001. Then, in 2020 we asked ourselves, “If anything were possible, what would we do better?” We imagined an ideal practice model that centered around justice, empowerment, safety, layers of support, and sustainability. Community Birth Works was born.
We provide the highest quality care for each client regardless of ability to pay, and we leverage our privilege to support organizations addressing equity issues of marginalized people. Our non-hierarchical leadership model is values-driven, and framed around social justice and contribution to the communities we serve. We actively seek guidance from and strive to uplift the work of the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities. We understand that courage is not comfortable and that discomfort is necessary for growth and learning.
The dream is big, and these commitments are justice work in progress. We’re optimistic and eager to create a better world, one birth at a time.
